Talking You know you're Pentecostal when...

You know you're Pentecostal when....

1): The amount of money you spend on hairspray exceeds your gas bill.
2): Your pastor announces midweek services EVERY Sunday night, and
Sunday service[s] EVERY Wednesday night.
3): You [or the ladies you know] can swim in a denim skirt and still
have fun.
4): It takes longer to TAKE prayer requests than it does to pray for
them.
5): You run into more than half of the church members on one trip to Wal-Mart.
6): The musicians at your church can tear it up, but non of them can
read sheet music.
7): You have 50 pairs of church shoes.
8): You're adept at stopping runs in stockings with just about anything.
9): You're considered an old maid if you're not married by age 18.
10): Running the aisles and jumping up and down is your exercise.
11): You could be an Olympic kickball player with all the practice
from church functions.
12): A birthday party is a night on the town.
13): Your white choir moves like Kirk Franklin's group.
14): The pastor says, "With this thought I close," more than three
times each service.
15): You have adequate respect for the power of flying hairpins.
16): Your feet have been stomped on at least 3 times during a service.
17): A run in your last pair of stockings is a national disaster.
1: You judge a church service by swollen eyes, rumpled clothes, and
disheveled hair.
19): Your kids know how to eat any crunchy thing quietly and could sleep on a hard bench through a tornado.
20): When shopping for shirts, you always run it through the "Praise
the Lord," test.
21): Sunday and Wednesday mean no cooking or dishes.
22): You can maneuver into a vehicle without messing up your hairdo.
23): Celebrating your 21st birthday doesn't mean much.
24): The employees at Wendys and BYB know you by name.
25): You can always find hairpins on the floor after a good service.
26): You can pronounce, "Habakkuk".
27): Mondays and Thursdays are the hardest days to wake up in the
morning.
2: Your day of rest includes 2 church services, choir practice, and
Golden Corral.
29): The kids you know think shot glasses are for playing communion.
30): Growing up you baptize your cousins and siblings several times in
the swimming pool.
31): Your 2 year-old runs through Wal-Mart shouting, "Praise the Lord!
Eb shamma dabba yamma yabba dooba! *clap *clap* clap* Yes, Lord! Yes,
Lord! Thank You Jesus! Hallelujah!"
32): The only thing longer than your prayer list is the hair of the
ladies you know.

Going camping means going to camp meeting and youth camp.

Yes...that is the truth. I was shocked to find out the world's idea of camping was not Buckeye Lake Camp Meeting!

Instead of "You Might Be a Red Neck", someone could do this as "You Might Be a Pentecostal" if...

Funny list and I can relate.

A few wisps of facial hair indicates one getting cold in the Lord... but only on men!
